One year + questions


Dread Maintenance

franks right but i'll add stop pulling those hairs out especially if it requires force..just leave them in they are fine

next when you wash use a small amount on the scalp and just massage the scalp then rinse don't work it into the ful length of the hair..and don't towel dry towel drying could be why washing erases progress

Almost 1 month semi-freeforming


General Questions

its not a shampoo its a all purpose soap use drbronners.com store locator it is super concentrated with a specific dilution for everything from floors to toothpaste and facials for a dread shampoo you use 12 times more water then soap...or more 20 is good too

i would never use the mango  lime crap and a clarifying shampoo or the dreadloockshampoo.com detox (special order till its on the site)

clarifying shampoos are pretty toxic too but not as harsh as the bs/acv

General Questions

were u braiding  or cornrowing or anything in the past that might cause the bald spots/

well what i would recommend is the charcoal detox  but you say you cant order anything.. baking soda eats away at the skin.. exfoliating by burning off the top layer of skin, acv, over 24 hours will make a chicken bone able to be tied in a knot because its partially dissolved

the 2 (when used separately never mixed) do result in a near balanced ph, oh the hair after use.. but the 2 each are too harsh  individually, and after using it for a few years  i had 8-10 inches fall off dreads pretty close to daily

it was that weak

if you don't have hard water try dr bronners (diluted) 

you might be able to get away with African black soaps too

or soap nuts..

General Questions

left this as a comment

that mango lime shampoo is absolute crap that contains plastics petroleum products all sorts of nastiness

the rubbing can backfire... for months it can create a messy knottiness then in just minutes wipe out 3 months progress

in fact just drying your hair normally with a towel can wipe out progress

if you got it knotty from rubbing be happy...but then stop... leave it alone to dread and don'[;t mess with it or you can wipe out all the progress you made

but also the back normally dreads 1st

your hairs a bit short to really dread well its going to need months of growth 

you can wear caps but the more you do the slower the progress (or maybe none)

we do not recommend the bs/acv anymore! its way too harsh and long term use can seriously weaken the hair 

theres way better shampoos and deep cleanse options

i'd leave the knots you got alone and let them tighten up.. 

how long till they look like dreads well its a lil hard to guess in your hair because its so short   a year till mature is typical sometimes a good bit more but you'll get comments on your dreads before that ..its going to be awhile though..

id take biotin to speed up the growth

well it bubbles up when its clean and doesn't need to bubble up

its the toxic crap that makes most shampoos have "rich lather' but they don't need to lather

you said you have  been washing less and its been dirtier  a second wash would get a rich lather because its cleaner

with the bars just rub on scalp a bit then massage it in with fingertips

are you overseas? if not  then why not just order 1 or 2 instead of filling a box

if you are overseas then the options depend on your water (bronners is a great option available everywhere, but not good t0o use in hard water) (if you do have hard water filtered or distilled water can be used for rinsing)

if you have hard water what you can use depends on whatsd available nearby

oh soap nuts can be used too

ps if your a year in you maybe able to switch from vickis liquid to bars

crappy way..crochet 

beter way but takes lil longer and lil more care, comb out 1-2 inches from the ends to be attached, mast them together so the combed hair overlaps the dreaded 

put them together so the dreaded parts meet and the loose hairs overlap the dreaded then use hemp or embroidery thread to wrap from 3 inches above to 3 below the joint...like a cast that letsthe dreads dred together naturally
